3. I have reused some of the mazda tank breather hoses. They are old but are not damaged or cracked. Will they get me on the age of the hoses? (I reused as they are shaped correctly for the route I ended up using for the tank drain.)

4. Unlike most, I have used OEM rubber hoses that are marked "/ DOT CEF 1/8 HL SAE J 1401 038 -- 43 11 10 / ". I assume this is enough for the IVA. Am I wrong?
My tester helped adjust the lights during the test

I don't think the tester looked at any dates or markings on pipes or hoses

Make sure that you make a file that has lots of photos of things like the earth bond for the tank etc

Build cost.... seems to be spending more on tools than car bits at the moment! (they will be handy in the future though).
